From the time of the 1920s to the 1930s their was mostly continuity. They went from having a rough time farming their land, supporting their families, and selling crops to not at all. In the 1920s people were mainly consumer driven, which mean everyone relied on their consumers to support their businesses, and at that time it worked. Everyone was buying products that looked like it was great for the economy and everyone, except for farmers. Then in the late 1920s to the whole 1930s when factories started overproducing and people started to slow down on buying stuff they didn't actually need the economy crashed. Businesses closed, people lost jobs, poverty rates went up, and many houses foreclosed. Hoover failed the country so FDR decided to step in and help. The New Deal started to save the country and economy but it was still not perfect.
